TENTATIVE: Pacificon 2021, San Ramon
October 15, 2021 – October 17, 2021 UTC-8
Well, the year 2020 is behind us, minus Pacificon, unfortunately. But we’re looking forward to October, 2021. We hope and expect that the pandemic will have been brought under control by then, allowing us to hold Pacificon 2021 in person. We’ll be working hard to make it the best one ever.
Thank you for your loyalty to Pacificon. We’ll see you at the San Ramon Marriott Hotel this October!
Pacificon gives you three great days of activities for one low cost:
* A full slate of outstanding Forum presentations about a wide range of amateur radio topics
* Gordon West
* Bob Heil
* Youth Forum with Carole Perry
* A large Vendor Expo filled with exciting products and exhibits
* An outdoor Swap Meet
* QRP activities
* Youth Activities
* Electronics kit building and soldering instruction
* A One Day License Prep Class to prepare you to pass the amateur radio Technician license examination and get your first amateur radio license
* A One Day License Prep Class to prepare you to upgrade to the General Class level.
* Two days of License Testing
* A Special Events Station where you can operate and contact other hams worldwide, even if you don’t have a General or Extra Class license
* A wonderful Banquet with Keynote Speaker
* Our annual Wouff Hong Initiation ceremony
* A chance to hear about and discuss important national amateur radio issues with top ARRL leaders
